When you finally arrive in Manhattan after a long flight, you wouldn’t typically think of immediately catching the subway into Brooklyn, but that’s exactly what I did. I had always wanted to watch the sun set over Manhattan and I arrived in the big city right on time.
There’s a platform looking out at Manhattan called Fulton Landing that is little known to anyone but locals. It’s the most incredible place to watch the sun set over the Big Apple while the entire skyline lights up into the night.
While you’re at Fulton Landing, be sure to grab a slice of pizza at Grimaldi’s down the street and a scoop of ice cream at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory on Fulton Landing. You will not be disappointed.
